Satellite A200 - white screen and gel

Hi Experts,

I have this machine for 2 years. It was no problem. Last month, he began to display a white screen, and at the same time, it has been frozen after 3-4 hours running. Push the power button to restart, it fozen soon. I replaced a new fan and cleaned the dust inside. But the problem is still there. Someone has ideas what is the problem?

Thanks in advance.


The issue appears only after a long period of use is good?
Eventually the higher temperature affects the graphics chip.
The question would appear again until the graphics chip to cool
This is my theory
What do you think about this?

It could also be a RAM problem anything is possible and that is why each part must be verified
In your case, I recommend you to contact a technician for laptop. The guys could check the parts. I mean it of better to check the hardware, then replace only the defective part rather than buy parts and hoped that the replacement would solve the problem.

But listen buddy; If the graphics card chip is really affected then replace the motherboard and this could be a costly affair!

  • Satellite A200 - white screen with 3 beeps


    My Toshiba Satellite A200 was recently gives me a white screen with 3 beeps at every start. I took it to my friend for repair and they told me that I had to take the battery out and put it so that it starts. It worked for him, but not me. I called technical support and told me it was a hardware problem with the memory or the motherboard.

    Anyone have the same problem and know what to do? I wouldn't mind not check memory myself I don't know where to start...

    Thank you

    Hi hpthinker,

    I think the support that you called is right and it s a hardware problem. Perhaps with memory or the motherboard

    The best way to fix this would be new modules of RAM because they can be easily replaced in a few minutes and are not expensive nowadays.
    Just so buy new modules of RAM in your local computer store, or ask your authorized service provider for this problem. They can offer you new RAM modules and you can test it again.

    By the way: If you have two RAM modules, test it with a module only.

  • Satellite A200 - 1C0 - overheating and close

    Hello world:

    I ve got a Satellite A200 - 1C0 PSAE0E and since one month, it stops due to overheating (hybridized with hot CPU). The fact is that when I restart the computer to the BIOS screen, fan of the processor begins to work at a very high speed (to cool the CPU), but to start Windows to start the fan suddenly stops, and the fact is that the CPU is always at 78 degrees celsius.

    I tried updating the BIOS, reinstall windows recovery partition and all components, but it does not solve anything. Also tried to install Windows 7 and still nothing and windows Xp and still nothing. I Don t know what else to do. Help will be apreciated.

    Thank you very much.


    To properly clean your cooling system, see this article from Toshiba:

    Another reason could be the old thermal grease and maybe, it must be renewed. If t, you can do it yourself, ask a technician for laptop help! :)

  • Satellite A60 - white screen Freeze on Boot up


    My laptop Satellite A60-106 has developed a problem starting up upward. It just hangs on a white to the startup screen until I see all the graphics. It seems that it can access the CD/DVD drive, but any attempt to start with a recovery disk fails in the same white screen and it freezes. I tried the advice from manufacturers that power with the F12 key and another suggestion on the
    CD hold down the C key while powering brings the same result.

    Nothing other than the white screen. I tried F8 to see if I can get into safe mode but it will not exceed the original deaf of readers and then silence. I can't imagine a way to get it to allow me to pass. I'm sure you can however? I'd be happy to format and reload but if I can't access the drive so how can I do this?

    I wanted to increase the RAM, but all the suggestions in the book of the hand do not relate to the layout of my laptop. The small Access window on the bottom of the laptop will not provide sufficient access to the RAM? Poking around the RAM could have induced this white screen lock?

    Thank you

    Hello, Charlie

    To be honest you have serious problem and I really don't believe that you can solve alone. It is not easy to say with certainty why white screen occurs at startup to the top. In my opinion there are several reasons responsible for this.
    -Display (electronic LCD screen, cable)
    -as far as I know white screen occurs if FL dimmer makes background light but there is no signal display can be defects on the motherboard and there is no video signal

    The best thing you can do is to contact the authorized service provider. They check your laptop. They have special tools and there is no problem to know why this happen.

    Good bye

    What is your system brand and model?

    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Symantec, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, MSE, Panda, Trend Micro, CA, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, Comodo, etc..

    The afflicted system has a CD/DVD drive work?

    You have a true bootable XP installation CD (it is not the same as any recovery CD provided with your system)?

    The symptom often means that your system is of a malicious software.

    With this particular symptom of hanging on isapnp.sys in Mode safe is to search for a driver of zero-byte length file in the c:\windows\system32\drivers folder.

    Of course, you have to boot the system on something in order to access the hard drive to find the suspicious file and get rid of it.

    If you have any installation CD bootable XP real where you start in the XP Recovery Console, or you are not sure what type of bootable CD, you have,
    make a CD of bootable XP Recovery Console or Hiren Boot CD and don't forget.

    There is no XP media needed to make a Hiren Boot CD or a bootable XP Recovery Console.  You can access the folder and check if
    There is this action suspect file and take.

    Once you're booted to the CD of your choice, navigate to the following folder (assuming that XP is installed on your C volume):


    Looking for a file that ends with an extension .sys and zero bytes in length.  The file can also have a curious name because she may have been generated at random.

    If you are in the XP Recovery Console, issue the following command in the c:\windows\system32\drivers folder:

    dir *.sys

    Files Scrolls one screen at a time.  Look at the list of files with .sys extensions and their lengths.  You don't need to
    worry about directories...  If you see a file with a .sys extension which is zero byte, it is suspect.

    If you use just the Mini XP Mode a Hiren boot CD (which works as Office XP), navigate to the folder of the my
    Computer desktop icon and locates the suspect files.

    You really want to remove the suspicious file once you get running and you run some scans for malware, but if you are
    not sure what is the suspicious file or if it might be necessary, just rename the suspicious file for now, in case you are not sure.

    For example, if you find zigxrtml.sys folder had a length of zero byte, rename it:

    Rename zigxrtml.sys zigxrtml.bad

    Renaming or removing the suspicious file to get the system running is not resolved the problem.  It is the symptom of the problem.

    The problem is your system is infected by malicious software and you should always follow up with a few scans to remove infections.

    Once your system is running, followed with MBAM and SAS to be sure that the affliction has really been removed.

    Reduce the risk of malware by running some scans.

    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware detection programs can solve any problems:

    Malwarebytes (MMFA):
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS):

    It can be uninstalled later if you wish.

    The scans by operating clean, restart, test your task manager and we can repair any other pending issues.

    Do, or do not. There is no test.

  • Satellite A200 - freeze occasionally and fade to the white of the screen

    I have a satellite A200, bought new last year. Sometimes the computer crashes, the screen starts fading to white and darker horizontal and vertical lines appear on the screen. I pressed the power switch until it turns off so I can restart, but after the reboot, it works fine. Initially this has happened only rarely, but it's starting to happen more and more lately.

    It happens very suddenly and it makes no difference, what I'm doing at the time. Sometimes it does just after the market. Does anyone know why he could do that? I'm not very technically savvy, so I would appreciate if you could explain it to me in a way I could understand :)

    I heard of some people having the same problem and can be caused by faulty wiring in the monitor. If this is the problem is it likely to be covered by warrantly?

    Post edited by: Charlie Llama

    You also have this problem on an external monitor? If this isn't the case, it sounds like a problem internal monitor and I think that it should be replaced.

    If your laptop is still under warranty the repair should be free for you. So in your case I would contact the nearest ASP that you can find on the Toshiba site: decision-making supported downloads & => find an authorized service provider

    Good luck!

  • White screen and beeps when turn on Satellite 3000 X 11

    Can anyone help? A couple of times in recent weeks my Satellite 3000 X 11 itself has turned off. However, it then displays a white screen when I turn it on and 3 beeps followed by 3 beeps of x x. The power led & battery lights on and the hard drive flashes once - fan does not work - it happened to someone else? Or can someone suggust cause and remedy? Thank you

    HI Edward,.

    Beep codes are indications that the unit doesn't have his POST processing. The exact cause can only be diagnosed by a qualified Toshiba service agent.

    In regards to your hard drive, will find it this located below your optical drive that must be removed first. Remove the screw (F5) the appliance and slide the optical drive before that. You will then be able to access the hard disk.

    Kind regards

  • Equium A200 - white screen at startup

    Hi all

    I need help. I just turned on my laptop (it has not been used for a few weeks) and it doesn't move on the loading screen, the loading bar scrolled so it collapsed. Its just very annoying. I rebooted several times, tried to take the battery, but still no difference. It has been "loading" now for about 10 minutes, then stopped loading and that a screen is empty. The keys are also beep if I click on them. The laptop is only 4 months and rarely used... could someone please advice?

    Details of the laptop:
    Toshiba SATELLITE A200-1VO

    Thank you! :-)

    Have you tried to reinstall the system?

    I mean you can try to boot from the restore CD that came with the laptop.
    In this case, you could test whether the material is ok

    If you will not be able to boot from the recovery CD and the laptop does not start the system, then you should ask the authorized service provider in your country for assistance of security seems to be valid and that's why everything has to be done for free

    Good luck

  • Satellite A200 - black screen of death

    Hi all

    I have a Satellite A200 PSAFCA-01K00J model. This model, I bought Harvey Norman in Australia, but I can't find any registration on the web site of current Toshiba or abandoned. This sux because I am looking for any bios updates available to address a recent black screen problem.

    The first time this has happened that I was able to reboot after removing the battery/cut the current to several times before its good. The next day, after an attempted works to install Kaspersky Anti-virus update the same problem... Power disconnected, removed, deleted drums (replacing the cylinder one and then the other to check the faulty ram memory cards) of ram and hard drive and then bled off residual tension with start button. Through this process several times before finally successful. I had to pass by it a few times since after restarts automatic windows updates, etc. I extracted the procedure to manually reset the bios by jumping it, but it's something I want to avoid doing this until I've exhausted all other options.

    Model - PSAFCA-01K00J
    O/s - Vista
    Hard Drive - 160GB with 50 GB of free space remaining.

    By the way: I ve checked the download from Toshiba on page and can not find this old model of laptop. I don't understand that Toshiba to THE is some archives for old models like on the page of European support.

    Anyway, I don't think that BIOS is the reason for this behavior.
